Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A reprint of the 1967 work (Hawthorn Books). The image of the farmer and shopkeeper pulling rifles off pegs on the wall to fight the British has been the typical image of the American minuteman. The fact that he may have had military training and drill is usually unmentioned. Interesting reading for the student or the professional. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
